Too many PHP Connections?

I’m getting
mysqli_real_connect(): (08004/1040): Too many connections

mysqli_connect(): (08004/1040): Too many connections 
mysqli_connect(): (HY000/1040): Too many connections

when I try to connect to Omeka and Wordpress sections of my account. I think I need to increase number of connections allowed, but I don’t know how to :frowning:

Hi there,

Apologies for resurrecting an old thread, but we’re currently digging through forum posts to ensure that we answer as many questions as we can even if only to have the information publicly available for the future.

This appears to be a case of your application hitting MySQL’s default max_connections setting; this setting can be changed in /etc/my.cnf, which requires root access to the server to change. If this issue is persisting, feel free to open a ticket with us and we can take a closer look, but making changes to shared hosting servers to up the max_connections may not be something we can do.
